Mark Tremonti of Creed, Alter Bridge Introduces His Band For Solo Album [VIDEO]
Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti is getting ready to release his debut solo album later this year titled 'All I Was'. Today, he introduced the band that will be performing and recording with him for the album. Tremonti will be joined by Eric Friedman on guitar, Brian Marshall on bass, and Garrett Whitlock on drums with Tremonti handling all the lead vocals.
Speaking with ARTISTdirect, Tremonti explained:
It's a dynamic record. It's probably heavier than either Creed or Alter Bridge, but it's still melody-driven. Most of the stuff is more up-tempo and heavy-riffing though. I had to write eleven solos for this record so it took me a long time. There's lots of soloing.
With regards to his vocal performance on the CD, Tremonti told IHeartGuitarBlog.com:
It's the first time I've ever sang on a record, so it was a good challenge for me. . . I've always been a songwriter, so I've sung while I was playing, but I write in my falsetto, so I'm hitting very high notes and all over the place, but I've always had a low range, so for my solo stuff I tune it way down. Y'know, I just never had the confidence before. I think the more I've sang over the years, the more I've developed the confidence in my voice, and I'm finally ready to do it on my own. But it's a whole different world.
